    It seemed that Behringer was working on a clone of the iconic E-Mu SP-1200 sampler. However, it has been confirmed that the company behind it is Islas Instruments. https://www.factmag.com/2019/03/04/isla-instruments-sp-2400-e-mu-sp-1200-update/

    It would be a modern version without floppy disks but with USB and possible internal memory. Since the PCB is called SP2400, it may be that the device includes two SP-1200 clones in one device.

    If it's true, these guys are really turning into an amazing company. I remember less than 10 years ago nobody would be caught dead with a Behringer product of any kind in a professional situation. The X32's really opened a new door for them. Excited to see what they do in the future!!

    It all depends on how they do it. If it's not much more than an SP-1200 clone then I wouldn't care much.
    If it's a new unique sampling and sequencing goove box with live FX then I'm really curious!

    They are not going to have any problems there. The already available SSI2144 sounds pretty close to the SSM2044

    I was waiting for this news!! Hopefully it will come true!! :wink:

    I'm checking hardware drum controllers+ at the moment (I have Arturia BeatStep Pro/DrumBrute Impact/SparkLE, Elektron Digitakt or Novation Circuit in mind) so I can control my VSTi drums as Vprom by Aly James Lab or drums within NI Kontakt.
    But if this E-Mu SP1200 clone will be made by Behringer and if it could be used as a drum-MIDI-controller for VST' drums..
    I'll patiently wait for it.. or rather unpatiently :crazy:

    And maybe the Linndrum/Linn LM-1 is coming too..

    cool, would be nice to test but so far I cant understand why i would use something like this.

    at some point filling the studio with hardware replicas would become something of a goal in itself and become a bit messy. with just a couple one really knows how to use it wold become useful maybe. anyhow, happy for the happy ones. :)

    If this is true, I'll be copping it regardless if it's a clone. The SP-1200 was one f the few samplers, I NEVER got to try in the 90's.

    The SP-1200 is a BIG deal. It has a distinct sound, like the ASR-10. That's the reason some of us are excited about it if it's true.

    Imagine if they clone the Roland MV8800 or the Roland MC-909 That would be epic.

    History repeats itself. Back in the late 80's and 90's we hated analogue. Now, we want analogue, including tape hiss, wow and flutter. If they release all of these synths and drum machines we will go into debt to buy them. Then in in 5 years, nobody will be using them. We would go back to VSTs. Only die hard will continue to use them. A cycle. Look at me, while in the Soviet Union I dreamt of the Emulator. I literally masturbated thinking of the Emulator. As soon as I arrived to the USA, I purchased the one you see in the photograph (on the other thread), and until this day I continue to use it. I have to be a masochist. I love its sound but when it comes to flexibility and usage, their is a big limitation. On top of that, this beast is VERY slow. We complain about Omnisphere taking 10 seconds to load, so imagine what the majority of us would do with this turtle. That is how I was able to buy mine. The owner, got tired of waiting. He was in love with his newly purchased AKAI sampler, and wanted to throw the Emulator in the lake. Sold it for $600. Friends were telling me that I paid to much. Now, I have the same peoplepeople paying me $300 per day just to use it. My Emulator II is my biatch. It turned me into a pimp. :rofl:
